Cinnamon is potent with antioxidant activity. Several controlled studies have shown that cinnamon can lower blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity.  You should limit your intake of cassia cinnamon — the type found in most grocery stores — to less than 1 teaspoon per day. 

4. Chia Seeds:

Chia seeds are extremely high in fiber, yet low in digestible carbs. In fact, 11 of the 12 grams of carbs in a 28-gram (1-oz) serving of chia seeds are fiber, which doesn’t raise blood sugar. The viscous fiber in chia seeds can actually lower your blood sugar levels by slowing down the rate at which food moves through your gut and is absorbed.

5. Turmeric:

Turmeric is a spice with powerful health benefits. Its active ingredient, curcumin, can lower inflammation and blood sugar levels while reducing heart disease risk. What’s more, curcumin appears to benefit kidney health in diabetics. This is important, as diabetes is one of the leading causes of kidney disease. Unfortunately, curcumin hasn’t absorbed that well on its own. Be sure to consume turmeric with piperine (found in black pepper) in order to boost absorption by as much as 2,000%.

The effectiveness of the food items may vary from case to case, and therefore, it is necessary to ensure that the right foods are consumed in the right quantities on the doctor’s advice
